Kinlochaline Castle

Kinlochaline Castle is a former 15th Century seat of the Clan MacInnes and is situated at the head of Loch Aline.  The castle had been uninhabited since 1690 until the present owners decided to renovate the building into a family home. The original part of the castle was a large, rectangular, 3 story space with a garret rising to a corbelled parapet, however it was agreed that the best way to give the family more space, and at the same time deal with the problems surrounding re-roofing the building, was in fact to construct a one and a half story dwelling on top of the existing tower. 

The building is Category B-listed and as such traditional building materials and methods were used wherever possible, helping to preserve the integrity of the original construction.
